Weekend sport – Sat 13th January. Rugby and Golf

Rugby:     Jedforest   64   Stewart’s Melville   7

A difficult day for the 1st XV at Jed on Saturday after a scoreless first quarter.     While this match probably was not marked down in the survival plan for Championship rugby this Saturday’s match with Musselburgh at Inverleith (2pm) certainly is.   With ten games left Musselburgh are one place (10th) and six match points ahead in the league table.    Pre-match lunches (12.30pm) are available on Saturday – contact lindseygeddes@live.com  .

There is always something different about the 3rd XV when our Lions’ legend Finlay Calder is involved.  Saturday’s 3rds for their match with Penicuik 2nd XV included a guest appearance by fellow Lion and 51 times capped Scottish internationalist Gary Armstrong who to keep things fair changed sides at half-time.  Oh … and the 3rd XV won 78 – 35 according to Lawrance Reilly who is used to keeping cricket scores.  A full accounting by Lawrance can be found on the rugby club website.
